and presidential overreach? >> we have a history and, if you look at ronald reagan he accomplished tax reform in the second term and president clinton made progress towards the balanced budget. there was good second-term accomplishment. it is not like we're roaming around the white house looking for things to do. we have immigration, gun safety, measures to help the economy and energy and we have a stack agenda here. there is urgency in the country for us to address this. we'll bring the same energy and focus he did to the second term. obviously, other administrations got, you know, in trouble with scandals. we avoided that and hope to continue that. but, those issues and others, education reform, there is just no shortage of things we can do to help the american middle class and the economy. we're going to pursue those and we are mindful of it and i think you have to stay connected with what you ran on and you can't bring stuff out of thin air, you know, i think one of the problems with the social security privatization effort during the bush administration was that wasn't really a core thin
romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas
inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to
the inauguration of president ronald reagan where we enjoyed a balmy 55 degree day. >>ates beautiful day. >> as can you hear, there's a crowd behind us here. the beginnings of some of the grassroots -- some of the people i guess out rehearsing for the parade. >> it's now 2 degrees above zero. the high is expected today to hor in the 2's or absorbing but the wind chill factor now has dropped to 17 degrees below zero. another reason why the parade has been canceled and the public swearing in ceremonies have been moved inside. >> it's nice and warm in here. the president said that he did not want to break p a winning team, but he is bringing in a new coach and general manager. >> mr. secretary, how are you going to whip this place into shape? >> i'm not going whip it into hap. i'm going to gradually get it into shape. >> with more senator pat moynihan. senator moynihan, any thoughts about what the bush presidency is likely to be now that we've seen how he has been behaving during this transition? >> very different from what we've had, and we're all very proud of him and happy for him today and looking
's post columnist and msnbc contributor e.j. deon. >> great to be here. >> thanks, e.j. ronald reagan was worn some as the 40th president of the united states ushering in an era of limited government and the rise of the modern conservative movement. yesterday barack obama, the 44th president of the united states, was sworn in for his second term. the moment that will define progressive politics m years to come and one that symbolizes a renewed faith and the power of the american government. needless to say, it was a day several decades in the making. >> for the first time in history government, the people said, was not our master. it is our servant. >> government is not the problem, and government is not the solution. we, the american people, we are the solution. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sapp our nation. they strengthen us. they do not make us a taker of nags. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> as he made a forceful case for economic equality and the social safety net pr
resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the landslides that george h.w. bush won, we're going to have to have a much bigger tent, and we can't be the party of todd aiken or richard murdoch or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the repub
" this past weekend he did define himself as a republican. a guy that ronald reagan picked to be his chairman of his joint chiefs. colin powell, i know, has supported for the past two terms, has supported barack obama. i'm glad, though, the guy still considers himself a republican and i want to figure out how to get him back under the big tent because as i write in the column you're talking about that's the first thing reagan would have done. reagan would have looked at colin powell okay how can i get that guy on my team. we haven't been thinking that way lately. we both to think that way again. you know what? it's not about ideological tests at the end of the day it's about winning. that's what reagan understood. he didn't win 49 states by accident. >> we have to be the party of solutions. one of the things troubling me right now, look i disagree with barack obama's fiscal and economic policy. i have for four years and i reckon i'll disagree with it for a while longer. i'll tell you this. the guy goes out and gives this gun control, safety speech today. okay. you don't have to agree with eve
. the last time it happened on a sunday was in 1985 when ronald reagan was inaugural rated for his second term and that day was historic because of how cold it was. 7 degrees that day. we are looking at much, much warmer temperatures. a beautiful day here today and supposed to be nice and pleasant tomorrow as well though we may get a little bit of snow later in the afternoon. martha? >> what kind of crowds are we expecting. we remember the historic and huge crowds there for president obama's first inauguration. >> crowd counting is a big sport in washington and it is disputed by people who think it is not a reliable number. last time around there were aerial shots and people went to great pains to actually count heads and estimate it and came up with almost 2 million people. nobody expects it to viral that. the crowd estimates ben 600,000 and 800,000 people. do not rule out the possibility that organizers are low balling and playing the expectations game assaying it could be as few as 600 so when it is a bit more than that it won't look as scant as it was four years ago at nearly 4 millio
to not just ronald reagan, president clinton had to deal with impeachment. what is it about the second term? >> second terms have been tough. even for franklin roosevelt. he started off his second term with his first political loss. here is why second terms are tough. number 1 many presidents often put out their best ideas in their first term. they don't even know necessarily if they are going to get a second crack. secondly, washington can be brutal. you are a little bit battered after a first term. and finally you have been in the washington bubble much too long and you do and everyone is calling you mr. president, and you have all of these handlers, and pollsters and hucksters who always bring you down to the lowest common denominator. my first advice to barack obama, take all of those pollsters and hucksters and second them to a island far, far away for the next four years. >> michael: listening to what you just said and coming off of that, president obama a lot of people think he has been in his own bubble. does that make him unusual? >> it does make him a little bit
that happened was 1985, with ronald reagan's second term. >> the office of the president of the united states. them hundreds of thousands people will be in washington monday, hoping to catch a glimpse of the man or the moment. millions will watch at home in the u.s. and around the world as barack obama delivers his second inaugural address. >> the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> ask not what your country can do for you. asked what you can do for your country. >> some speeches have been memorable, providing lines that live on base. many others have been instantly forgettable. >> it is a chance to be more reflective. he is not talking about a crisis in the country. he is not talking about a specific economic problem. he's getting a chance to talk more generally about his vision. he does not get many chances like that. >> the inauguration is a celebration of the moment when the u.s. comes together to mark the peaceful end to an election were sometimes the peaceful transition of power. from the moment he is sworn in, the clock begins ticking on barack obama, out with his final term
, and as a result, it got compressed and warmed up as it came through. there's a live look at ronald reagan's washington national airport right now. 62 today. not a record for the date, but it is the warmest inauguration day on record. the unofficial record because it's hard to have weather records that far back. march 4th, 1793, george washington's inauguration, 61 degrees. officially the warmest inauguration day is 55 from reagan's first inaugural. we're at 55 degrees in washington. winds remain strong out of the northwest at 18 miles per hour. that northwest wind, that's the leading edge of the colder air we've been talking about for days. it is inbound, and this warmer air is on its way out. so as you make your plans for tomorrow, a colder start than this morning. temperatures in the 30s climbing into the mid-40s tomorrow, but clouds on the increase tomorrow, and there will be a chance for some passing snow showers late in the day. so good-bye to the warmer air. as the cold snap starts to roll in here, the leading edge of the arctic air arrives around sunset tomorrow and that will set u
-hosts. >> greg: i left that out. >> andrea: greg, you are my hero. is bette midler trying to blame ronald reagan for tragedies like newtown i? think so. plus hollywood heavyweight robert redford sounds off on violence in his industry. his comments might surprise you. that's next on "the five." ♪ ♪ so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. ♪ ♪ >> eric: attention journalists out there. instead of trying to make conservatives look crazy in the gun debate, how about fair and balanceed debate. including the president. look at the opinion guide i dug up. in 1999, then state senator barack obama had a chance to vote on a bill that clamped down on school shooters specifically aggravated assault with a firearm. what did he do? he voted present. aka, he didn't do his job to protect kids. what is th
including back in 1985 during the second inauguration of president ronald reagan and also when eisenhower, he took his first of the second oath on a sunday. >> arthel: and reports you probably saw the official swearing in live on fox news, but the real celebration will take place tomorrow when president obama takes his public oath of office in front of hundreds of thousands of well-wishers at the national mall. chief political correspondent carl cameron is live with the preview. right now how is the crowd overall? >> it's getting busy but not as busy as four years ago. president obama made history when he made reelection. he was the first president that had fewer popular votes and fewer votes in the electoral college. this is likely to be more subdued out of deference to the economy and national challenges faced by the u.s.a. and the new president there are metrics to show. four years ago there was about 2 million people that showed up. this time around, experts are predicting somewhere between 600,000 to 800,000 so it could be a third of the crowd four years ago. in addition these are no
inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah, you remember four years ago how exciting it was for the country as he was being sworn in and how much hope there was for hope and change and back then, the approval rating according to gallup was 68% and today, you know, after four years and obviously, it's harder to be a president than a hopeful candidate, it's at 48%. >> steve: you know what's interesting, about two or three weeks ago at the conclusion of december, the gallup poll number was, don't tell me, was 58%, so, closer to 60. what's happened in the last couple of weeks? well, you know, he did win that fiscal cliff thing and jacked up taxes on the most successful people in the country a campaign promise and experts say it looks as if his push to reining in gun vio
to fundamentally implement them, it would be illegal to try to implement it. and ronald reagan discovered in the iran-contra process, the power of congress to say you can't spend the money, is 100%-- remember, the first public speaker in 40 years, we met the contract, we closed the government twice, for six days in november and 21 days in december and january of 1995-1996. it was after we closed it that bill clinton came to the capitol and said to the state of the union the era of big government is over. he didn't do that because he got there himself. he did that because he recognized that a congress that was determined to shrink government was changing the terms of his presidency. >> mike: i am 'm going to get t some of the moments of almost 20 years ago and talk about today. and talk about the president as gun control plan, it wouldn't be the first time that washington has banned so-called assault weapons. back when the speaker was in office in 1994, congress passed a similar law. coming up, i'm going to ask newt gingrich about how he felt about the ban then, and then compare it with th
inauguration of ronald reagan and when eisenhower in 1957 was taking his second oath. >>gregg: as president obama prepares to kickoff the second concern there is growing concern over the administration's recently outlined plan to rewrite the nation's gun laws. beginning with a campaign style tour to drum up support. doug, is the president's campaign-like approach to all of this a response to the tough partisan realities on capitol hill? >> that is a good statement. for example, republican senator rand paul has vowed to introduce legislation to nullify the president's 23 executive actions he signed last week. he says the founders did not want the president to become a king. senator feinstein's plan to introduce a new assault weapons and extended magazine ban is facing daunting obstacles. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states where the president received fewer than 42 percent of the votes. >> leader harry reid will make guns one of the earliest things we consider. chairman leahy has talked about he
tradition of going to st. john's right before their inauguration. harry truman, ronald reagan and both president bush's went to st. john's on the actual morning of the inauguration. we watch president barack obama carry on that tradition. bill: remarkable when you are here in washington and you see the white house for the location where we are, lafayette church, st. john's church is on the north end of lafayette park. if you were to walk as a civilian, might be 300 yards total. martha: not today. bill: in this case with the president and first family and amount of security in washington, d.c. as we see the vice president now get inside of his limousine as well, there are no chances taken here. climbing into cadillac 1, coming back to the white house before the procession begins up pennsylvania avenue toward the capitol building. that church is such a beautiful part of our nation's capitol. if you have been here you have seen it and you have seen the history inside of it and how intimate it is as a house of worship. martha: the presidents sit in the pew 54 in st. john's which is reserve
on 20th being on sunday was ronald reagan and it was 7 degrees. there is record low. we are nothing like that today. we won't be tomorrow either. >> heather: it looks beautiful. thank you. be sure and tune in tomorrow for full coverage of the any understanding raise, bret baier and megyn kelly will anchor events systematic at 11:00 a.m. eastern. >> gregg: a fox news alert. breaking details now on that hostage crisis in algeria. security officials say even more bodies have been found now inside the remote desert gas plant, just one day after bloody raid ended the four day standoff. dozens of hostages did manage to escape unharmed but 23 were killed. there are new reports that there was as many 8 americans among the hostages, one has died and seven escaped. there is growing concern over the fate of two other americans who remain missing this hour. coner powell has the latest. >> reporter: algerian officials saying the death toll that does stand at 23 is likely to increase in the next few days as they get more and more information. algerian officials have spent the last 24 hours or so shift
. and this is the 7th time, scott, on a sunday the president has taken the oath of office. the last time ronald reagan in 1985. scott. >> pelley: the robinson family, of course is the family of michelle obama. her grandmother originally owned this bible. this is the blue room. there is the chief justice of the united states. and we expect to see the president very shortly. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i barack obama hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. the constitution of the united states. >> the correspondence steution of the united states. >> so help you god. me god. congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice. thank you so much. ( applause ) thank you, sir. >> i did it. all right. thank you everybody. >> pelley: just as simple as that the president with the first family in the blue ro
. >> a majority of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment, who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them-- this is ronald reagan speaking-- urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> suarez: additionally, the obama plan calls for congress to order background checks for all gun sales, ending the so-called "gun show loophole." and it seeks stiffer penalties for people who sell guns to criminals. all told, the plan would cost some $500 million. and president obama said, "it's going to take some heavy political lifting." >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty, not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. and behind the scenes they'll do everything they can to block any common-sense reform and make sure not
was 1981 at 55 degrees. both times, the president was ronald reagan. that's a look at your forecast around here. seven-day forecast is minutes away. first, our qatar airways travel forecast. >> flowing with quiet energy. be free. be alive. let the story be >> coming up at 6:00, some local competitive cyclists tell us what they hope comes out of lance armstrong's big chill confession. >> and american airlines gives its airplanes a new look. >> and a bucket of balls out of the sky and crashes through the roof of a business, but the mystery is solved. we will explain at 6:00. >> maryland governor martin o'malley today plans to propose a standing early voting states in the state. residents would be allowed to register on the same day they cast a ballot. the head of the maryland republican party says same-day registration would invite voter fraud. and o'malley spokeswoman says the bill is simply about providing more opportunities for citizens to register to vote. >> a former d.c. police officer could and the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of killing his girlfriend and their da
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchess defenders of the second amendment who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. [applause] >> finally, congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress hasn't confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in six years, they should confirm todd jones who will be -- who has been acting and i will be nominating for the post. [applause] >> and at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force we should put more cops back on the job, and back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual a right to bear arms
of congress, in the case of gun control, even red state democrats to marshal public support. ronald reagan did this, too. go over the heads of congress, try to appeal to people and tell them light up the congressman switch boards. >> it's interesting when a president gets a second term to see how they handle things differently than in the first. >> the history of second terms is not too good. ronald reagan, iran contra, bill clinton, monica lewisky, george w. bush, hurricane katrina. >> brings you back to your original question, why do they want the job? >> they all want the job. >> true. good to see you. you can catch fox news sunday 9:00 sunday morning after fox 5 morning news. >>> it's 8 19:00 now. still ahead, controversial statements, what former d.c. mayor marion berry is saying about his infamous drug arrest. >> plus, holly has an inaugural fashion show, it's coming up. we'll be right back.       >>> former mayor berry complained the fbi tried to kill him during their 1990 sting operation in which he was caught smoking crack cocaine in a hotel room. he tells u.s. news and wor
of this it almost seemed for a while as if it was a response to the words spoken by president ronald reagan in 1981 when he said government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem and president obama saying in this particular address providing a strong defense for the nation's entitlement programs. >> the commitments we make to each other for medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not stop our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. rich: calling for bipartisansh bipartisanship. this is very much on a surface a day for bipartisanship with reality hits in washington tomorrow it will not be the beginning of a new era with bipartisanship. back to you. ashley: thanks so much. tracy: actress and producer drew barrymore teaming up with wal-mart. launching a new beauty line in the brand. named after her production company available in wal-mart stores across the country. she chose wal-mart due to the vast reach and accessibility because she didn't want to spend money on mar
